The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will award grants totaling $2.4 million to five teams to assess the potential of using consumer technologies, such as personal health records, smart phones and sensors, to record "observations of daily living" to help patients and physicians better manage chronic conditions.

The grants are part of the Princeton, N.J.-based foundation's Project HealthDesign initiative launched in late 2006 to enable consumers to better use the information within PHRs and elsewhere to improve their health. Each team will receive a two-year grant of $480,000.
